At the moment, we do not yet know what format the first Wild Rift World Championship will take. However, we do know that 24 teams will participate.

Of the qualified teams, 6 will qualify automatically. The other 16 teams will have to go through a play-in phase to reach the final phase. As for the number of participants, not all regions of the world are on the same level as in LoL, as can be seen in this picture.

The Asian leagues will be in the majority with a total of 13 teams. North America will send only two challengers. As for Europe, like the Latin American and Brazilian leagues, we will have three teams competing to become the winners of the Wild Rift Icons Global Championship 2022 and become the first League of Legends: Wild Rift World Champions.

Keeping with the theme, we recently told you about a partnership between Wild Rift and Coca-Cola to create a major scene onesport mobile.
